Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a hazed, lighter golden color with tons of carbonation forming a massive white foamy head. The huge head makes fitting the brew in a pint glass impossible at first. The head very slowly fades, eventually making this a two/ three pour beer to make it fit in a standard 16 oz pint glass. Upon fading the head leaves a good level of bubbly lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is yeasty and a little bit grainy with a hint of caramel sweetness. Along with these smells is a little bit of a grassy smell as well as some citrus and spice with a bit of a grape like smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a wheat and grainy flavor with a light lemon and orange flavor. A yeasty flavor is present upfront as well, with the combination of flavors having a rather smooth taste. As the taste advances, flavors of hay, some funkiness and tartness as well as a decent amount of a grassy flavor come to the tongue. These flavors add a new dimension to the flavor profile but also take away from the smoothness of the beer, leaving a drier Saison flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the rather high side (as would have been anticipated from the huge head). Both were rather appropriate for the Saison style and made for a rather easy drinking brew.

Overall – A decent Saison, but nothing all that extraordinary. Rather easy drinking and at least worth a try.

A-Crisp light golden appearance--about the same as Bud.

S-Much hoppier, far less fruity than other beers in this category.

T-Loved the hops--if I had to classify this on my own I would call it a light pale ale. None of the sour fruity tastes I usually get from a farmhouse type ale.

M-Nothing objectionable here--smooth, consistent, and imminently drinkable.

O-Noticeably better than OK. I enjoyed the second one as much as the first, and would have had a third but my wife was ready to go!
